Feeding the Nation's Children--Education's Job?
Perryman, John
Children who are hungry cannot be taught. To discharge successfully the responsibility of teaching entrusted to them, the schools must provide food for children's bodies as well as intellectual stimulation for their minds. This is expecially true of children from poverty-stricken homes. Although recent legislation provides free lunches and breakfasts for such children, these laws are subject to economic means tests and local controls; apply in some cases but not in others; and provide some foods and not others--all of which reduces the effectiveness of a free-foods program. Future programs should provide free lunches to all children as a necessary facet of free education. (RA)
